The “elbow,” Or the Lower Cape, includes the towns of Eastham, Chatham, Orleans, and Brewster. Squeezed between the Atlantic waters of the Cape Cod National Seashore, this area runs the length of the eastern side and includes the more protected Cape Cod Bay.

From the famed "Yellow Dory" at Point of Rocks Beach, to the unique seascape of "clam trees" of Rock Harbor at sunset, to the ethereal night sky over Stage Harbor, this evening workshop will satisfy your appetite for capturing the landscapes of the Cape in the best light. If you're looking to improve your sunset and low-light photography this one's for you.
